Divine Strake

Divine Strake is the code name for the June 2, 2006 testing of a 700 ton bomb in Nevada, about 90 miles Northwest of Las Vegas. This test will be conducted mere miles from past nuclear test sites without knowledge of the existance of remaining radioactive contamination. Should Divine Strake happen as scheduled, there is danger of that radioactivity being sent into our environment.

This strike will occour on the Western Shoshone Tribal Lands whose inhabitants have been fighting to shut down the test site where Divine Strake will occor. The United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination found that the United States is in violation of basic human rights standards and international law. CERD further ordered the United States to freeze, desist, and stop their actions on Western Shoshone tribal lands. Our voices must be hard if there is any chance of this being stopped!

    I believe this planned explosion is to be 700 TONS or 1,400,000 POUNDS of explosives, rather than 700 punds.
